Cross Training with By the Moon

Cross training as a Holistic Reproductive Practitioner is a great option for Certified Reflexologists, Birth Doulas, Postpartum Doulas, Childbirth Educators, and Reiki Practitioners. Learn additional skills such as how to specialize your holistic practice in fertility, loss, and birth trauma. Add new modalities to your existing practice. Acquire additional training with a broader or different perspective that is unique to By the Moon.


  • Learn how to appropriately combine modalities for your clients.

  • Gain confidence in working with clients who are trying to conceive, who are pregnant, giving birth or postpartum.

  • Expand your birth or postpartum practice to include broad certifications that include information and experience supporting all people, including those who are not in the reproductive phase of life, for example people with diabetes, fibromyalgia, back pain, anxiety, depression, or even those who are healthy and looking for practitioners who can support them in prevention.


There are countless reasons why professionals who have completed training in modalities that are included in the Holistic Reproductive Practitioner training program cross train with By the Moon. Components of the By the Moon Holistic Reproductive Practitioner training program are completely unique to By the Moon and not offered elsewhere.
